First of all, there is a recall for gas tank replacement for your vehicle. The dealer will replace it free. The link will get you to the document in PDF form Redirect Notice
It looks like there is a bracket on one end of the tank hidden by a heat shield
Make sure the Supply and return pipes to the fuel tank unit are not the wrong way around.
Your supply pipe lifts fuel from the bottom of the tank, and your return pipe normaly just goes about halfway down.
hi this sounds like you might have a vent problem, on the tank there is a pipe/hose that lets the tank breath if this gets blocked it could cause suction in the tank itself , do you have problems sometimes when you put fuel into the tank, like the pump cuts off as if it were full? this is a good sign that the vent pipe/hose is clogged and needs to be removed and cleaned or replaced if the pipe is collapsed.....hope this helps
You need to replace the hose that vents the filler pipe.It goes from the pipe to the tank and if it is plgged you have no way to get the air in the tank that is beig replaced by fuel to get out of the tank exept for the sam e hole that the nozzle is in.
Modification done by inserting generic T fitting into 3 way junction (Heater Core, Water pump, Surge tank) and using heater hose instead of pipe. Bye the way; the return pipe from the surge tank was not leaking so I did not bother to replace that pipe. I am watching the hose to make sure that pressurization swelling does not cause chaffing of the hose. The original replacement pipe was $80 and this modification is a fraction of that cost.The labor savings is significantly more important & valuable since this pipe requires the engine to be dropped (cradle installation) in order to remove and reroute the pipes from the firewall side of the Northstar V-8.There are two hard to reach attachments on the block that make it a maintenance nightmare.The resultant elevation of the hose to the surge tank and back does not inhibit surge tank functioning, at least not at this writing.I am keeping a close eye on everything.Experimental, but very doable fix.
IT might be either in the boot on top of tank OR on the rear of tank,
If on rear then drain at least 1/2 the tank out before undoing the clip ring which turns to the l/h/ to undo use a small piece of copper or brass or even good piece of timber but not steel ..
Undo and take out pump and filter To check pump wipe clean and dry and let it dry out for about 1/2 hr before fitting battery power to it for checking and if dont sound good straight away or the filter is dirty then new one is the answer..
REPLACE IT in the reverse of removal and make sure that the petrol pipes are fitted tight.
When you take the pipes off the back of pump then fit something in pipes to stop the loss of petrol .
Good news, no the tank doesn't have to come down. However, there needs to be less than 3/4 tank. Jack it up and set on a jack stand, remove the wheel, four screws housing to pipe, filler pipe sensing hose from filler pipe, screw retaining the cap, four retaining screws from filler pipe, screw from filler pipe retainer, slide into the tank until it can be rotated and pulled out through the fender. lube the tank grommet with clean oil and reverse the removal for install.
